For many years, the valley of Clinton has suffered under the oppressive weight of peace and harmony.

Now, at last, war has come again to the traditional stomping grounds of Lions Gate’s mighty army, the ancestral seat of Viscountess Maelen and her lord, Viscount Scellanus, and the home of Tir Righ’s most venerable castle. War!! Economic prosperity! Martial glory! And a new collection of epic tales to while away the winter hours!

The ravening hordes of Cold Keep and her lackeys are marching South under the flimsy pretext of collecting tithes. The Glorious Baron and Baroness of Lions Gate call on their armies, their vassals, their allies, and all lovers of truth and justice to join them in crushing this nefarious insurrection, and then celebrating victory in an epic party for the ages.

Return with us to the home of mighty battles of the past. Join friends and family as we meet in glorious battle, slay our foes, and then join them in camaraderie and revels afterwards. Hear the clash of armoured combat upon the dusty plains of Clinton! Witness the swashbuckling elegance of rapier combat in the tavern! Hear the songs of the bards as we gather around the hearths at night, and revel in the craft of the most skilled of artists as we sing, fight, and craft our way to victory.

Come Seagirt! Come Madrone! Come Borealis and Montengarde! Thornwold and Danescombe, Krakafjord, Raamsgard, and Tir Bannog, come ye all! Come ride to victory in armour, rapier, archery and thrown weapons, arts and a children’s battle.

Come home. Come witness history. Come to Lion’s War.
